Our committee is run by a small group of former pupils. We currently need volunteers to start shadowing some of our roles, ready to take on the jobs listed below. A number of us will be stepping down over the next year or two, and if we can’t be replaced, who is going to run your Society?
Last year we successfully combined the Membership and Database Secretary roles. Now we need someone with a few hours to spare for the new role(s) of Events Organiser. This will include organising and running Founder’s Weekend events, the AGM, the Tea and Carol Party. Not as scary as it might sound, you will get lots of help from the committee who usually organise the events. Each event could be run by a different person!
We would like a new Gifts Officer who can source new ideas and sell at events. We also need a Vice-chair to take over in 2018, and we also need someone, ideally with some finance or accounting background, to shadow our Treasurer for a while before taking over her role.
Alternatively, if you can spare some time to help us out at events, selling gifts and generally being useful, we should be delighted to meet you!
All these roles can be managed from home. Our evening committee meetings in March, June, September and November rotate around our homes, so ideally you will live in or near Bristol. Good computer skills needed, obviously. Thinking of returning to work after a break? A full time mum with a few hours to spare? ‘Voluntary work’ like this makes your CV stand out – our Secretary worked at Bristol University’s Careers Service, so she speaks from experience!
Please do think seriously about joining us. Our future depends on you.
